EVENT DETAILS
UPDATE: INVESTIGATION OF DETERIORATION OF INTERIOR FINISHES
By Christine Leggio, Paint Conservator
At: Superstructures
32 Sixth Avenue, 13th Floor, New York, NY 

(One block south of Canal Street)

Bakás Pilipinas Inc. invites you to a presentation on exciting new research about the deterioration of the historic interior finishes of San Sebastian Basilica, a Philippine National Landmark.  

Built in 1891, San Sebastian Basilica is the only all-metal church in the country and one of a few in Asia.  The church interior is painted to simulate stone.  Corroding metal threatens the future of the trompe l’oeil interior finishes. The presentation, featuring the work of Christine Leggio, Paint Conservator, will include an update on the investigation phase of the restoration project.

Ticket proceeds will fund a research project to determine how the restoration may be of benefit to the community surrounding the Basilica.  Seating is limited.  Ticket amount is tax-deductible.
